North Alabama is 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. The under is 7-3 in North Alabama’s last 10 road games. Gonzaga is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a win. The under is 4-1 in Gonzaga’s last 5 games.
Gonzaga is the better team in this matchup but the worry is how hard they will try in the second half with a big lead. We saw them absolutely dominate the second half in their last game and cover the very large spread, but will they do that again? I am taking Gonzaga in this game for the same reason I took them last game, their backups are better than their opponents starters.
